Tomorrow, April 1, would be the perfect day to celebrate the 2nd Annual Wacky Packages Day with this release

Second best news I've heard today only after my grocer said, "why, yes. we do have toilet paper today".

I'm excited but nervous at the same time! It's been a long time since the last postcards, and I have a feeling Topps is going to charge a lot for these, much like the price increase on Old School. I just got furloughed at work, so money will be tight. But I have all the previous postcard sets and I really want to get these to continue the collection with no holes.

No Daryl. The last thing any of us want to do is promote a virus. These are a fun diversion from the bad news

No worries! Prices will be reasonable, especially if you just want a base set of the regular postcards.

That's good to hear.  There is nothing remotely funny about this pandemic.

If sales are a little lower than the earlier sets, I hope Topps will take into account that a lot of people are losing their jobs.  On that note, if anyone here finds themselves furloughed/laid off/fired when the set is released, shoot me a PM.

Thanks! The problem is I want the bonus cards. I have a complete set thus far. Never completed the artist profile cards, but that's OK if I miss those. I will weigh the options once these are released. I don't see a glut of too many Wacky Packages products released this year, so maybe I can swing this.

Based on past experience, a 10:00 am or noon Topps release time (Eastern).  I haven't seen any notices from Topps - has anyone else?

Topps notices are always an hour or more after items are posted, I wouldn’t wait for that if you want to be first in.

Had I been working at the office, I wouldn't have gotten the good news about this release today nearly so soon.  The thought of new April Fool Wacky Postcards cheered me up, and I'm actually working a little more focused now.

Well, I ordered 3 sets of the limited edition in order to (hopefully) get a complete set of Bio cards. Those were some of my favorite items in the original run, a complete set of them makes a fabulous 'series' (as does a set of the bonus cards). If I get dupes, I'll be back here trading!

Let's hope this is the start of a regular return, the Halloween postcards RULE.

Pity they didn't make a new binder for these.
